Get Rid Of The Advertisements

♥ She needed me ♥
 
Image and video hosting by TinyPic


My mother
She sits,
and stares out the window;
she really sees nothing at all
She gazes out into space,
A blank look
Can be seen,
On her face,
then she turns,
And faces the wall.

It does not seem that long ago;
when she was raising me,
back then,
I depended upon her,
now, she depends upon me.

She is like a child alone,
In the darkness,
just groping, to find her way,
she looks healthy and normal
It is her mind
That is gone
Away

I say, Mom
It is time for your morning bath,
and it is time to take your pills,
she looks up at me,
With an innocent eyes
then she whispers,
Well, maybe I will

She knows she has Alzheimer's,
However,
She does not know exactly,
What that means,
She does not understand that
Something is terribly wrong.
It broke my heart,
To tell her,
She can no longer
Live alone

It hurts me inside
When I hear her say
Please, do not touch me
Please, leave me alone
You are a stranger to me
How did you get into my home?

I look at her with tear filled eyes
Saying mama it’s me
Your baby girl
She looks at me
With blank filled eyes
I am her daughter
However, she does not realize
That it is me
I can see it in
Her eyes

I watched her as her memory,
Began to fade away
I watched her as her mind,
Slipped, away

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


I watched her
Both night and day
Each day she slipped
Further away

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So
Lost and confused inside
She was alive
However, her mind had died

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


I look into her eyes,
That were always so blue
but now they are dull,
And without a clue
the sparkle that once,
was there,
Is no more
every thought,
Has become a chore

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I never thought,
Our roles would swap,
Tell me, please
When this pain will stop


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

When will she look at me?
As though,
I am not a stranger in her home
When will she look at me,
and know
I am her daughter
The one she has given life
When will I be?
Recognized in my
Mother’s eyes
